Trunk Show Arrives from Cotton-in-the-Cabin

You won't want to miss the latest trunk show that has arrived at Little Quilts. From Sandy McCay of Cotton-In-The-Cabin, the quilt and doll clothes patterns are in her book "Reminiscences" ($20), featuring Grandma Minnie's Doll Clothes & Quilts. Antique dolls are modeling the trunk show clothes:

If you are a doll collector or have kids or grandkids who would admire the display of these three precious antique dolls, come to see them. If you have antique dolls, think about making some of the clothes from this book out of reproduction fabrics. Your dolls could wear them and you could store their real clothes away from sunlight and potential damage. If you have American Girl Dolls, these patterns will work to cloth them, as well.
